@ Maintainer(s): Please tell us when we can start stabilization of =x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-390.12 or CC arches on your own.

[Non-]minor note: Any masking which is done should not block 384.111, etc. for hardware which doesn't run on 390.x branch. The maintainer is unlikely to make this mistake even if the CVE bot didn't understand the nuance.

390.12 is a beta and is not going stable at all.
Comment 4 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2018-03-25 18:27:52 UTC
Fixed versions are stable.

@maintainer(s), please clean the vulnerable versions or put a mask in place noting the security vulnerability.

Tree clean, too old for GLSA.
